Narita Airport

With the different airports that I have been to, I would have to say that Narita Airport is possibly one of my favourite ones especially with the amount of things to do during a layover. I couldn’t stop myself and had a little fun stocking up on some onigiris and Kit Kats. I know a lot of people out there have had some boring experiences at airports with nothing to do but with traveling, sometimes you never know what you may find.

Condensed Milk

I was recently in Hong Kong early this year and one of my hobbies has always been strolling into the 7-Elevens. I am not sure what it is about convenience stores overseas but you can find some interesting gems there. One of the best finds was condensed milk in a tube which in my humble opinion is just genius! For those that have never had condensed milk on toast, I can say that you are missing out because it’s positively heavenly but it can be messy at times when you are taking it out of the can packaging. The tube packaging is a smart move, it’s a cleaner way to apply the spread onto your toast.

St. Lawrence River (Fleuve Saint-Laurent)

IMG_20140517_145341

I decided to end of my last post on Québec City with the breathtaking view of the St. Lawrence River. While my 5 weeks in Québec City might be considered short or long depending on who you ask, I can honestly say that it was a rewarding experience regardless of the length of time. It was not easy at first as this was my first time living away from home but it was an enriching experience for me overall. My time in the city has allowed me to not only improve my French (I still have a lot to work on), learn about a different side of Canada, meet new people but also do a bit more self discovery.

Cher la ville de Québec et l’Université Laval,

Merci beaucoup pour l’experience bonne. Je retournerai bientôt!

Le Marché du Vieux-Port de Québec

If you are looking for some a little different, what better way than to visit a farmer’s market? The market was actually one of my unplanned stops but it was a pleasant surprise over all because for food lovers such as myself, this is the place to go if you want the freshest of local produce.

Le Croquembouche

If there was a place that I wished I had more time for, it would be Le Croquembouche.  When I had visited them, I wanted to eat everything in sight but I only had enough room for a croissant which was fantastic in case anyone was wondering. However they had a variety of bread, cakes, chocolates, etc. that I wanted to try but wasn’t able to fit it all into my stomach.  Hopefully I will be back soon!

La Maison des 100 thés

I am a bit of a tea lover so whenever I come across any shops that sell tea, my feet usually directs me right into the door. La Maison des 100 thés is a quiet little shop located on avenue McGuire that offers a range of tea from various regions of the world and they also carry the popular Kusmi teas as well. At first glance you might be deceived by appearances but the moment you step into the store you automatically get this cosy feeling that comes from drinking tea.

Champagne Chocolatier

This chocolate shop wasn’t on my list but I was on rue Saint-Joseph during a rainy day and I needed to slip into somewhere. Champagne Chocolatier was a pleasant surprise because aside from the usual chocolate fan fare, they also offered a small range of frozen desserts which I decided to have with a cappuccino. I know it might seemed a bit bizarre to have a frozen dessert during a rainy day instead of eating something warm but then I figured the cappuccino would balance it all it. It took a bit of time for it to get to room temperature but it definitely did not disappoint as the mix of raspberry and the chocolate complimented each other very well.
